Hassan Mortaji, the director of Iran-Russia Trade Conference due to be held in Moscow on May 24-25, said that trade with Russia is also economical for Iran due to low transport costs.

Nearly 100 Russian chambers of commerce have signaled readiness to participate in Iran-Russia Trade Conference which is aimed to link Iranian and Russian merchants, Mortaji said.

"Although the ground is prepared for Iran's active presence in Russia and despite the elimination of rivals like Turkey, our country has not seized the chance properly," Mortaji added.

Russia has said it plans to provide a large part of its food needs from Iran.
